according to the Nation, one of Thailand's Nearly English Language Dailies they do not even have the capacity to control their food intake. Bhikkhus teach their supporters how to maintain their diet in an intelligent manner in a Buddhist world. When newspapers suggest that fat assed Thais are now in charge of teaching monks how to eat, hell in a handbasket is not far behind. Thai monks are incapable of reading and understanding the vinaya so it seems and the only thing they seem capable of reflecting on is their next Twinkie is coming from.
I often visit and spend time in Kammathanga Dhutanga Wats and rarely if ever see a Bhikkhu abuse food, but in Thai Buddhist Wats gluttony is a refuge that seems to fit in to the Thai lifestyle. Just another example proving Thailand is not a Buddhist country.
